My ordinance reads: (1) "LIVESTOCK. Chicken farms & commercial livestock breeding or raising are not permitted. Domestic animals shall be permitted provided that same do not become a nuisance or annoyance to the owners of the other lots." (2) "Residential purposes shall include use of the property for LIGHT AGRICULTURAL PURPOSE such as gardens and orchards provided NO RETAIL SALES will be permitted from any lot. NO trade, business or profession of any kind shall be conducted on any lot. NO sign shall be erected on any lot." I'd like to create a web page about my chicken life. I would like to mention if someone needs eggs or whatever to "off set" my price for feed/raising, I will deliver. I'm in the country so bartering is always an option for things needed to improve my life. I am wondering is it illegal to give my place a farm name when I am not allowed "chicken farms" according to my restrictive covenants? What constitutes a "farm"? I asked the courts & they said LARGE & PRODUCTIVE & REGISTERED. I'm on 5 acres & will soon start raising food for the family. From cows to veggies to chickens, which I'm allowed to have if they are not that "nuisance" mentioned. I'd be the first on my road to start this. To call my place something would be nice BUT if the maggots next door think I'm really running a business ... Would using "farm" be an open invite from the local zoning department? I'd also like to get certified (or whatever it's called) as having a clean, disease free range. Would this help my cause if the neighbors try to lay down the bible on me? (The Covenants) Does this open a window I should leave closed? According to these papers I'm limited. According to the county laws I'm wide open. According to all the people in the court house, if anything flies, the papers are what they will strictly enforce upon me if I'm doing wrong. OH ... forgot to mention that "the committee" that put this crap together ... 3 are now dead & 1 (who I've talked too & is now up in her 70's) no longer cares what anyone does & will enforce nothing *but* the courts said the paper is still unbreakable. Thanks for any thoughts, opinions or warnings.
